Description

In January 2013 I was snow camping for a few days in Yosemite Valley. My first night in the park I walked along the Merced to one of my favorite views of El Capitan. Unfortunately the light and clouds weren't cooperating over the Captain so I headed back toward the car. Halfway there I noticed this little pine tree in "snow monk's" pose. The blissfully-smooth Merced river was providing elegant reflections of the Cathedral Rocks and as the sun sank lower in the sky it filled the clouds with a luscious, wine-colored light. I'm not religious but I certainly was worshiping in the Temple of Snow that night!
